UNION, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Prosecutors in New Jersey continue to investigate the alleged sex abuse of minors by a Union Township man, who was recently arrested.

The Union County Prosecutor’s Office said 52-year-old Valter Sforca was charged with the sexual abuse of two minor children, who visited his home between 2008 and 2011.

Authorities said that following an investigation, prosecutors have identified the first names of two additional victims, one of whom may have recently moved to Brazil following the abuse.

Those authorities are asking for the public to help identify those two victims and want any parent who has had a child visit or sleepover at Sforca’s residence to contact Detective Cassie Kim at (908) 965- 3886 immediately.

Sforca tried to flee the country on January 31 and offered $8,000 to a distant acquaintance for help to get to Canada, JFK Airport, or leave for Brazil via Port Newark, prosecutors said.  He was immediately arrested after that acquaintance contacted authorities.

Sforca has since posted $500,000 in bail and currently has an electronic wristlet monitoring his whereabouts.
